Learn and do the best for your company

If your business chooses the do-it-yourself approach; the first thing you must undertake is to set up a local entity via registration and incorporation. However, this will be an expensive and consuming process, requiring accounting and skilled legal support to ensure the most important thing in this area; compliance.

Similarly, of course, there are some businesses that can bear the cost and time of setting up a branch office; but there are some instances where taking advantage of a local EOR service provider like us is a better option. In addition, we have an already existing legal entity that will handle immigration and labor requirements in the UAE. Further, we have massive expertise being the intermediary between the organization and its workers; ensuring full compliance with all regulations and laws.

In the UAE, immigration policies and regulations are constantly changing. Moreover, there is more scrutiny by the government regarding visas, types of organization activities, and work permits. Thus, this makes compliance the most important challenge for relocating businesses since immigration violations have several consequences for a business and the involved.

However, instead of risking non-compliance issues with the immigration authorities; many businesses decide to work with us through our EOR and PEO services. Likewise, with this practice, your staff working in the UAE will have no problems with the overuse of business visas, multiple entries, and remote payroll. That is to say, we will handle all visa and work permit necessities and avoid complications from the immigration authorities.

Most countries will mandate businesses with workers on assignment to manage a payroll complying with the local standards and a registered entity. Similarly, this practice of “remote payroll” is not always allowed, especially for long-term assignments.

Likewise, a key aspect of doing businesses in the UAE is the withholding and calculation of the different pay deductions, such as health insurance, taxes, and pensions. We take care of these crucial areas; ensuring full accurate compliance for all your business workers. EOR and PEO services are your best employment solution; we provide the needed legal entity to run payroll with experience in tax regulations. Therefore, ensuring an issue-free process with the local authorities.
